"In the name of God, Amen. I Josiah Stanborough, being sick in body, but of perfect memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament this 6 of July, 1661. I commit my Soul to Almighty God and my body to be buried at Sagaponack by my former wife. I leave to my wife Alce, one-third of my land within fence, during her life, and then to my sone Peregrine Stanborough. "To my daughter Sarah, 12 head of cattle. To my daughter Mary, 10 head of cattle and 20 sheep. To my son Josiah all my land unfenced and 10 head of cattle and 20 sheep. To the poor of Southampton, L3. I make my son Peregrine, executor."
